Hey friends! It's been a busy few weeks of our kids wrapping up their school year, us working on patio updates for Summer (here's our plan), and my husband and I just celebrating our 16th year anniversary! After going through some rough patches, this year's anniversary just seemed a bit more special and it was nice to just send the kids off to Grandma's and stay at the beach house.

He surprised me with one of my fave flowers - stargazer lilies!

Beach House Art Work and Rope Basket - Coastal Interiors

Hanging Rope Basket by Sewcialite (this is where we currently corral our keys) / Sailboat Artwork by Melissa Lyons Art / Large Clear Glass Vase (about 6" x 6" x 12") alternative set of 4 / Reclaimed Wood Entryway Console Table from Homegoods (alternative)


I have to admit I've been feeling pulled in a million directions lately. I've been brainstorming content for the blog and Instagram and it's going to look a little different for Summer since I'm home with our 3 kiddos until school starts back up again in September.  I'm pretty protective of our time together and boundaries, but I also LOVE to design and help you guys get that Coastal look!

With that said, I recently asked you guys on Instagram if you preferred more of a product round up style of blog posts (such as Coastal Dining Chairs or lighting or rugs, etc.) OR if you preferred more edesigns.  You guys gave me a good laugh because the results were basically split down the middle. Of course. ;-)

I'll be kicking off a series for the Summer (more to come) that will include a mix of edesigns, product round ups, and personal projects from our beach house like our Master Bedroom reveal, our Patio and some furniture makeovers. I can't wait to share all of these and also more details about a fun project in the works that will help you guys in your own decorating endeavors!

Onto today's edesign and all the epic sales for the 4th of July Holiday - they're GOOD!

I came across this storage bench with cute wicker basket and drawers as I've been debating what to put in our own entryway.  As for the It's possible to get multiples of these and put them side by side and get the built in look without them actually being built in. Plus they come in multiple colors and are a great option for refinishing if you wanted to!

The diamond rug below is also currently 55% off with hundreds of other rugs so if you're on the lookout for a good rug at a good price, check out all the options HERE!

Serena & Lily is also having a 20% off sitewide sale and their rugs are some of my favorites for getting that Coastal Chic look!

Cozy Sitting Area with Sleeper Chair

Coastal Interiors, Edesign, Home Blog Posts, Home DecorAnneke McConnell

Whether you have room for guests in a dedicated room or not, it's nice to have some alternative sleeping options for visitors. One of the easiest ways to do this is with a sleeper sofa or chair.  There's nothing extra to store away or a space that is not being used all that much (depending on how often you have guests!). 

This edesign showcases a simple and inviting chair to relax in, but it can also be opened into a twin mattress bed when needed. Win-win!

Before diving into design details, a couple sales worth noting:

I hope you enjoy this edesign and find it inspiring for your own home!  I'm especially loving those pillows!!!

Our PNW Beach House Patio Makeover Plan

Coastal Interiors, Edesign, Home Blog Posts, Home Decor, Our Home, Our Beach HouseAnneke McConnell

Our beach house is relatively tiny and living in the Pacific Northwest Seattle area means that when it's warm and sunny outside, you want to make the most of it!  Updating our patio space for the Summer has been "on deck" for awhile now, and I'm so excited to share more of the transformation on Instagram as this plan comes to life! Here are a few things to keep in mind:

 

1. The patio is an extension of our home and where we spend A LOT of our time during the Summer months June-September. The weather is typically between 70s and 80s and perfect for playing outside, beach activities, walks, kayaking, boating, outside dining, etc.

 

2. We LOVE to have people over to hang out, eat good food, let the kids play, etc.  Updating our patio dining area has been HUGE on my wishlist for the past couple of years, so I'm pretty excited about this new outdoor dining set to welcome family and friends alike. With the added space, we can host larger groups than other times of the year when it's gray and rainy outside.

 

3. We're a "down to earth" kind of family and things can get messy, so whatever we planned for the patio had to accommodate fishing activities (the fire pit area is also where we'll need a spot for bait boxes, coolers, etc. as we come and go during launching).  Our kiddos and their friends are also often running across the deck from one house to the next or from the beach side of the house to the street/back lot side. Sand is flying, rock treasures abound, etc. and so I've been brainstorming design ideas to make this patio a happy balance between a "beautiful and calm oasis" to "family-friendly fun zone". :-)

 

Some of the items in today's design we already own (like the outdoor sectional) and others are on order slowly arriving one by one.  This will definitely be completed in a few phases.  

Let's dive into the design plan for the three different sections of the patio: the lounge area, the dining area, and the fire pit area (also right off the boat ramp and multipurpose utility area).

Foldable adirondack chairs were a MUST for this space since we need to be able to move everything out of the way for fishing gear at different times. 

 

There can definitely be more components when it comes to an outdoor space since they may be multiple "zones" you're working with.  This kind of feels like three rooms in one. :-)  We're excited to share the process and how it all comes together, and hopefully it inspires you and gives you ideas for your own patio or porch space!

I'll share updates as we move along (hopefully writing more too)! It's crazy town here at the end of the school year!! xoxo

Beach House Master Bedroom Progress

Bedroom, Coastal InteriorsAnneke McConnell

Hey friends! The Beach House Master Bedroom Project is moving along quickly and I'm excited to share the final AFTER soon! The plan has changed a bit since I first shared the edesign plan we were going for - you can see the original plan HERE.

Our bedding has arrived from Serena & Lily (on major sale right now!), and I'm so excited about their linen duvet cover and shams - nothing says beach house like linen, right? 

Also, after reading more reviews of the original desk we chose, many people said the color was very different from the photo, so I switched it up and went with this pretty white writing desk (also acting as a nightstand). Needless to say, I.LOVE.IT!!!! It fits our space perfectly and is exactly what we need with two small side drawers and a center laptop tray drawer.

More to come soon, but here are some "not so perfect" progress shots!

 

 

I couldn't have done all of this installing of window shades and curtains without my husband Michael!  He has been a HUGE help! Thanks babe!

 

 

We also got one of my favorite affordable traverse rods installed on all of the four windows.  It takes a bit of extra time, but pinching the hooks closed before mounting the rod on the wall is well worth the effort in the long run - I'm saying that from experience of them sliding out easily!

 

SHOP THE LOOK

 

We're still waiting on a handful of items to arrive like our new bed, but I'll keep you posted as it comes together! Thanks for stopping by today!
